This study aimed to resolve one of problems which face most of current embedded web browsers for example the web browser provided by MINIGUI which does not support Flash. The present study developed an embedded web browser the add flash on flash plug in interface. The designs based on Mozilla and Konqueror reference architecture, since these applications constitute a good sample of current web browser technology and are quite distinct from others as they are all based on different rendering engines and GUI toolkits. During the development work flash support was enabled in the browser by adding functions, module and data types then modify some parts of the source code. After development the browser was tested several time and changes were made, final test performed and the browser supported flash player without any problem. Since flash objects are huge and the browser builds DOM and RENDER tree, it sacrifices its browsing speed. On the other hand new technologies are immerging into web page every day and web pages are updating from time to time. Facing these facts, the developed browser may meet some difficulties therefore the study expect, it not to display well some blocks in a web page.
